Lapsang Souchong Tea

Wonderful, tarry smokiness to this most fantastic China tea

  • SMOOTHLY SMOKY

    Wonderful, tarry smokiness to this most fantastic China tea. It is said to have been discovered by accident, during the Qing era, when an army delayed the drying of the tea. After the soldiers left, in order to dry the leaves quickly to get them to market on time, the workers lit pinewood and hung the leaves over the fire.The smoked flavour created a sensation - a new tea was born. I love everything about this loose leaf tea.

    BREW

    Brewing the best cup.1 teaspoon per cup. Freshly boiling water, brew your tea for 4 minutes, a good rule of thumb is 3-5 minutes for most black teas (depending on your preference for strength) and enjoy with or without milk
